I have recently delved into the world of investing in Fine and Antique art. Before I met Kevin, I was always concerned about what I was buying and whether I was paying over the odds for it .
Kevin has proven to be incredibly knowledgeable in both the art and ensuring the price I pay is correct. This, when spending considerable sums for a painting is invaluable.Working with Kevin is both enjoyable and enlightening. He will go the extra mile to ensure the art you are buying is right for you,not his pocket! I can't recommend Kevin highly enough.

We approached Thomas Fine Art during the final year of a six year restoration of a historic manor house in Northern Portugal. The estate is being developed into a tourism resort and while the property came with a large amount of antique furniture it was lacking quality paintings. We commissioned Thomas Fine Art to source a portfolio of paintings to fit key wall spaces within the main house.
The criteria was not easy; the paintings needed to sit comfortably in a Portuguese environment and this meant we could not have anything too UK-specific (such as landscapes).
Thomas Fine Art flew out in September 2012 and did a careful survey of the site and by November 2012 had sourced 24 paintings, each of which were selected to fit the spaces available with a mixture of floral, fruit and religious themes.
These themes ideally matched the estates extensive fruit orchards, olive groves, vineyards, formal gardens and chapel. This was not only an incredibly fast turnaround but doubly impressive was the fact that all the paintings offered were absolutely suitable for our needs both in terms of size and theme. They arrived in Portugal by haulier (also organised by Thomas Fine Art) in January 2013.

The service, price, quality and suitability has been fantastic. Thomas Fine Art has made a great contribution to our re-development project and we would not hesitate to recommend their services.
